CFP: "One or Several Deleuzes?", First International Deleuze Studies Conference, Cardiff University, August 11-13, 2008.
The incredible body of research on Deleuze’s work that has emerged inthe past two decades - well over 130 books and literally thousands of articles - has created asituation in which it is no longer possible for a lone scholar to keep pace with new developmentsin the field. As scholars in disciplines as far flung from each other as musicology, organisational studies, philosophy and cultural studies embrace Deleuze this problem grows ever moreintractable. Compounding matters further, Deleuze scholarship spans most languages. In the process there has appeared a highlycontested variety of Deleuzes - there is the political Deleuze, the apolitical Deleuze, the philosophical Deleuze (who is a Kantian, a Nietzschean, a Spinozist, a Stoic, etc.), the phenomenological Deleuze, the activist Deleuze, and so on. Sponsored bythe journal Deleuze Studies, the aim of this conference is to bring all these Deleuzes into communication. Participants include: Hanjo Berressem, Ronald Bogue, Claire Colebrook, Gary Genosko, Eugene Holland, Dorothea Olkowski, John Protevi, James Williams. The conference is convened by Ian Buchanan, Tim Matts and Aidan Tynan. Send panel proposals and abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Registration, accommodation options and program updates will be posted on the web at:www.cardiff.ac.uk/encap/. Graduate Students may also be interested in attending Deleuze Camp 2 -‘When far too much Deleuzeis barely enough!’.
